Edward Steele Biography
Who is Edward Steele?
There HAS been a tragic update on two missing children after a two-year-old boy was found wandering near the train tracks where his one-year-old brother was found dead.
A father of the two boys from Ukiah, California, reported him missing Wednesday around 1:20 p.m.
The one-year-old’s brother, who is two years old, was found wandering near the train tracks where the one-year-old was later foundCredit
The two-year-old boy was found alone and “in distress” around 4 p.m. by the sheriff’s office thanks to a tip.
He appeared to be suffering from heat-related symptoms, according to authorities.
The boy was taken to Adventist Health Ukiah Vally Hospital for a “life-threatening medical emergency,” police say.
Approximately 20 minutes later, the one-year-old brother was found dead on the train tracks near the location where the two-year-old was found.
The children were left in the care of 32-year-old Edward “Two Feathers” Steele at a nearby motel, according to police.
Steele has since been named a person of interest in the investigation and is believed to have information on the two boys before police find them, authorities say.
A sheriff’s spokesman said Steele is not the father of the children, The Mercury News reported.
Police were able to find Steele and took him into custody after he was believed to be avoiding them.
Members of the Hopland Tribal contacted police after Steele was seen at the Hopland Rancheria.
Before the children went missing, police arrived at a parking lot in Ukiah after receiving a report of domestic violence before dawn.
Police said Steele and a woman he had been dating were in the parking lot.
When the woman spoke to police, she said her two children were with a babysitter at a nearby motel.
The woman would later be arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence, according to police.
Police then believed that Steele had taken charge of the children after the woman’s arrest, according to the Associated Press.
Investigators also learned that a man was walking with two young children around 4:50 a.m. Wednesday, which police believe was Steele and the children before they went missing.
Someone reported it to the police, but when they showed up, the three were nowhere to be found.
Police arrested Steele on suspicion of murder, according to multiple media outlets.
